Not a terrific movie by any stretch, but not as bad as its rep, either.

Instead of taking it seriously, watch it for what it is: a cheesy remake of "The Most Dangerous Game." Of course, it's not suspenseful--except as the runtime nears its end, with no obvious
resolution in sight--but the story's been told so many times, how could it be?

You might have a better time by focusing on its little quirks: why does the dangerous, experienced hunter go into a steamy jungle
wearing a buttoned-up leather jacket and a black fedora? Why do the henchmen all dress exactly alike--horizontally striped shirts, dark
pants and dark caps? (All they need are "clever" name tags to resemble the interchangeable thugs on the "Batman" TV show.)

Finally, take pity on poor Pete. Quicksand around? Pete steps in it. A club-wielding looney? Pete gets clobbered. "Someone needs to scout around for the madman with a crossbow, while the rest of us stay safe. Pete, YOU do it."


Poor guy.

Subject: Teenagers? THESE are TEENagers?
Well, I guess if this was the fare at the drive-in, who's gonna notice that these youngsters don't really look (Nor act) that young; 'smatter of fact, the main hero of the youts is none other than Robert Reed (Rietz) of Mr. Mike Brady, patriarch of the Brady Bunch. An' although he is the obvious leader and has the most facetime, he gets 4th (FOURTH) billing in the credits.
Only the thing is that these folks try to portray Rabert Reed as a teenager himself.. The guy was born in 1932. The movie credits say that this was made in MCMLIX... or 1959. Yeah, the scripting here says 1961 but who're ya gonna bleeve... the writin' or the on-screen credits? That would make "Johnny" (So clever these writers - an' original too) a teenager of at least 27.

Slow? gads... Perfect make-out movie... There's lotsa time between actual plot features to get kissy without losing the story line.

The ending? a little of a surprise solution only 3 minutes from the end credit AND rather than living hapily ever after.... our heros determine that they are GONNA live happily ever after - - - it's cheaper on the production budget that way.

All they lack is Jerry Lewis an' a big almost talking dog an' you'd have Scooby Doo.
